Noni spent some time east of the Cooper River photographing a gorgeous Creek Club at I’On wedding, and we’re ecstatic to share some of our favorite moments with you today! Nestled on the banks of the Cooper River, the Creek Club offers sweeping waterfront vistas with a contemporary atmosphere perfect for a southern chic wedding. Stephanie and Eric’s special day was exactly that, a beautiful outdoor ceremony dripping with southern charm and then a simply elegant reception at the club’s open and inviting dining hall. Noni began with Stephanie as she was putting the finishing touches on her bridal ensemble. Her mermaid-style dress was absolutely stunning and the intricate lace designs turned the gown into something magical. Beading speckled the lace and featured prominently in a belt that was the perfect compliment to the outfit. She looked magnificent.
Standing at the end of the aisle, Eric was handsome in his grey-blue suit and pink rose boutonniere. His eyes were locked on Stephanie as she made her grand entrance, a harp’s soft melody floating over the gathered friends and family. We love that the couple held their daughter’s hands during the benediction, a moment that is one of our favorite photos. Then, with a few words in front of everyone and sealed with a kiss, our smiling couple were newlyweds. Before the festivities consumed them, Noni was able to sneak them away for just a few portraits. With sprawling trees draped with Spanish moss and the Cooper River serving as a gorgeous backdrop, we were able to capture the perfect beauty of Stephanie’s bridal look. She and Eric wanted elegance to course through their day and their portraits beautifully captured that theme.
The ornate fireplaces and exposed beams of the Creek Club’s interior added warm, inviting elements to a gorgeous reception. The soft pinks and whites of Stephanie’s rose bouquet were reflected along each table and went beautifully with the room. Before long, Eric carried a laughing Stephanie in to a standing ovation and they shared their first dance, yielding the floor to their little one who wanted in on the action too! While their guests were enjoying the meal provided by the Creek Club, our newlyweds took the time for some more portraits in the golden light of the setting sun. Stephanie’s parasol was a fun addition to her portraits but we adore her romantic moments with Eric in front of a creek flowing lazily behind them. Escaping at the end of the night was no easy task, as everyone gathered with sparklers to see them off and get one last look at the happy couple.
Stephanie and Eric, thank you both so much for including us in your day. It was a truly magical experience. We wish you and your daughter nothing but the best as you move forward together! Congratulations again!
